Doomben horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:38) IPCQ Since 1971 BM75 (1050m)
#3 – The Move @ $3.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Move is shooting for three consecutive wins and the five-year-old gelding can handle this tough field.
He is a son of Hinchinbrook that is a four-time winner overall and his 1.3-length win at Doomben last start was a solid effort.
Getting 3kg off his back helps, so put him on top.
Race 2. (12:13) IPCQ Celebrating 50 Years C3 (1350m)
#1 – Achiever @ $9 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Chris Waller-trained four-year-old ran fourth in the Queensland Derby last start and he could make a winning return.
He has yet to win fresh up, but he’s quick enough to win over this distance and he has the class edge over this field.
Watch for late betting moves.
Race 3. (12:48) Hear & Say Foundation C6 Handicap (1200m)
#8 – She Can Sing @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Michael Costa-trained mare is shooting for four consecutive wins after winning by a half-length over a similar field last start.
She ran third on debut and has since lodged three straight wins, so she’s classy and capable of rising through the grades.
Barrier nine makes it tricky, but she should be well-backed.
Race 4. (13:23) IPCQ Industrial Coatings Handicap (2000m)
#5 – London Banker @ $3.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
London Banker is a six-time winner from 20 starts and he has looked above average at his last two starts.
The son of Tavistock was strong to the line last time out and he looks to have more wins in store this season.
55.5kg on his back is ideal and punters get value odds.
Race 5. (14:02) Danny McGuinness Memorial C6 (1600m)
#2 – Roman Aureus @ $4.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Roman Aureus has been knocking on the door this campaign with four consecutive placings. He has been expensive for win punters, but he doesn’t know how to run a bad race.
The five-year-old son of Red Element owns five wins and nine placings from 19 starts, so the consistent runner is well worth following.
$4.40 is unlikely to last long.
Race 6. (14:42) IPCQ Golden Jubilee C6 Handicap (1200m)
#5 – Weona Smartone @ $2.05 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Weona Smartone is a classy five-year-old gelding that owns five wins from six starts. The five-year-old lives up to his name and the son of Shamexpress could keep winning.
David Vandyke lines him up and after scoring three wins already this campaign, he’s ready to fire. He also finished second in a trial at Gold Coast, which bodes well.
$2.05 is a good price for the class runner of the field.
Race 7. (15:22) Emery, Mears & Jeffs Plate (1200m)
#1 – Prince of Boom @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Prince of Boom looked the goods at his first two starts before having no luck in the Group 1 Sires’ Produce.
This is a much easier race and we’re surprised he’s not much shorter in the betting. He is a talented son of Spirit of Boom that won on debut by 4.8 lengths before winning by 2.5 lengths in open company.
It’s red-hot form for this level of racing.
Race 8. (16:02) IPCQ Corrosion Control Handicap (1350m)
#4 – Desert Lord @ $2.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Desert Lord is a seven-time winner who has yet to finish worse than second in two starts at Doomben.
The Vandyke-trained seven-year-old is also a two-time winner at the distance and he doesn’t mind the sting out of the surface.
Barrier two should see him land on the speed and show a good kick.
Race 9. (16:38) Tab Venue Mode BM78 (1350m)
#10 – Acrobatic @ $6 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Acrobatic has already scored twice this preparation and he could add a third on Saturday.
The Kelly Schweida-trained four-year-old is a three-time winner at Doomben, and he hit the line nicely to score by a half-length last time out.
Punters get value odds and they’re worth taking.
